The point is this: now we know why James Carville hasn't formerly joined his staff.

I wrote a blog post a couple weeks ago comparing Kerry to Indiana Jones, although since everybody wants Indy to get away I called him Massachusetts Kerry.

There's another comment in Tour about Kerry hating snakes (page 280):

"Skipper, there's a snake over there coming at you!" Ever since childhood, Kerry had been petrified of snakes.... "Shoot the mofo" Kerry yelled (Euphemised--the real swear word was used in the book).

That joke about lawyers, sharks, & professional courtesy comes to mind

Kerry should stay clear of mirrors.

I remember Colonel Kurtz backing out of a super secret mission to Cambodia called Escape from New York. He said he didn't like my name-Snake Pliskin.

Hmmmm, snakes, eh? Maybe that's why Alice Cooper doesn't seem to be in Kerry's camp.

Alice slams anti-Bush rockers

WINNIPEG -- In the eyes of Alice Cooper, all the rock stars campaigning for Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry are guilty of one thing: treason. The shock-rock legend, a staunch Republican who attends NBA games in Phoenix with Arizona Senator John McCain, was disgusted when he learned of plans by Bruce Springsteen, John Mellencamp, R.E.M. and other bands to hold a series of concerts aimed at unseating U.S. President George W. Bush.

"To me, that's treason. I call it treason against rock 'n' roll because rock is the antithesis of politics. Rock should never be in bed with politics," says the 56-year-old Cooper, who begins a 15-city Canadian tour on Aug. 20 in Thunder Bay, Ont.

"When I was a kid and my parents started talking about politics, I'd run to my room and put on the Rolling Stones as loud as I could. So when I see all these rock stars up there talking politics, it makes me sick.

"If you're listening to a rock star in order to get your information on who to vote for, you're a bigger moron than they are. Why are we rock stars? Because we're morons. We sleep all day, we play music at night and very rarely do we sit around reading the Washington Journal."

Despite his strong insistence that rock has no place in politics, Cooper is one of just a handful of high-profile musicians who've proclaimed support for Bush.

The list of pop-culture Republicans includes Britney Spears, Toby Keith and Ted Nugent, the latter being one of Cooper's old buddies from his early days in Detroit.

Cooper's Canadian tour dates include Edmonton on Sept. 13.
